Devil’s Bargain


From France to South Africa, Bosnia, Moldova, the United States and Canada, Devil’s Bargain examines the ways in which guns slip from legal to illicit markets. From dealers, to pilots, to end-users, to the victims, we discover a largely unregulated trade in what has become the globalization of death.
When 200,000 AK-47s go missing from Bosnia, activists call for an International Treaty to curb the trade. But it’s blocked by the super power, and loopholes “big enough for an Antonov to fly through” continue to allow the flow of guns that destabilize our world…


  • This is a must see if you care at all about the social-political issues in the wider world. With characteristic aplomb and incisive reporting, director Shelley Saywell follows the small-arms trade around the world… It’s a deeply disturbing picture of the trade in guns and tells us how little is really known about the shadowy world in which arms dealers exist.
    John Doyle, The Globe and Mail
  • Many thanks for the extraordinary documentary you have produced. I am furthermore encouraged to pursue aggressively my work in attempting to eradicate the use of child soldiers as the primary weapon systems in over 30 conflicts in the world. Your attention to detail, intellectual rigor and objective presentation of the facts surrounding these weapons of mass destruction in the hands of children is a primary reference in our campaign.
    Lieutenant-General the Honourable Romeo A. Dallaire
